(Worthy News) - Iran said pro-Damascus forces would press ahead with attacks on an insurgent enclave near the Syrian capital, as ground fighting raged on there in defiance of a U.N. resolution demanding a 30-day truce across the country.

Turkey, too, said its military operations in another theater of war in the north of Syria would not be affected by the unanimous Security Council vote demanding the truce to allow for aid access and medical evacuations.

Anti-government rebels said they clashed with pro-government forces near Damascus on Sunday, as rescuers and residents said warplanes struck some towns in the eastern Ghouta pocket. [ Source: Reuters (Read More...) ]

  1. What is this about?

    I mean, why is there a war in Syria?

    What's so important to Assad that he's willing to promise Russia whatever, if they'll only help him kill or run off (a million?) Syrians from his land?

    Why?

    I think that's gotten lost in all this.

    Why is Assad doing this to his own land and people?

    What's it all about?
